Favorite Book This Week: Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #1

All books were new in stores on 12/15/10


Birds of Prey #7
Writer: Gail Simone, Penciller: Ardian Syaf, Inker: Vicente Cifuentes

I haven't been picking this up for a while, but I saw the preview for this issue online and decided to jump back in. In general I love the Birds of Prey, and this was a fairly solid issue. I think the preview I had already seen was the best part, though. (See it here.)

Darkwing Duck #7
Writer: Ian Brill, Artist: James Silvani, Colorist: Andrew Dalhouse

Check out the awesome retro cover (Cover B) on this issue! The Crisis on Infinite Darkwings continues, bringing in more references from old episodes (and other Disney properties...) and propelling our heroes toward confrontation with the bad guys. Of course, it ends on a big cliffhanger and a character reveal. Bringing back and upgrading an obscure villain doesn't always work, but I think this next part could be good.

Mouse Guard: The Black Axe #1
Written and Illustrated by David Petersen

Mouse Guard is so beautiful. This mini-series is planned to give the backstory of Celanwe, also known as The Black Axe. It's off to a great start, with fishers and birds, mystery and action. Mouse Guard isn't always well-written, but this is a strong issue. We're not going to stop collecting these any time soon; the art is too good to pass up.
